November 29, 1926: First Studio Basic Agreement signed

The producers and the unions signed the first Studio Basic Agreement – not so much a contract but a true agreement to negotiate wages, benefits, hours and working conditions, as well as grievances.
It was a major breakthrough in Hollywood labor relations – and just in time.  The talkies were about to burst on the scene, with a whole new field of work opening up to entertainment industry workers.
